History of the Whiskey Rebellion Hike

September 17, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


History of the Whiskey Rebellion Hike

Join historian, John McNulty, for a hike along some of Pittsburgh’s most beautiful trails in Mt Washington’s Emerald View Park and discover the first major uprising after America’s independence.

The 1790s were a tumultuous and violent time on the American frontier. War raged between the young republic and first nation forces in what is now western Ohio. An insurrection among the citizenry who lived west of the Appalachian Mountains tested the power and authority of the first administration under the new constitutional system. Indeed, George Washington had his hands full and pursued a no-nonsense policy against what became known as the Whiskey Rebellion.

Leaving from Olympia Park, the hike will explore the Duquesne Heights section of the Emerald View trail system and emerge near the George Washington and Seneca leader Guyasuta statue, and one of the most beautiful views of Pittsburgh. This moderate-pace hike will cover about three miles but will include frequent stops to learn about the unique history of the Pittsburgh region’s role in the Whiskey Rebellion.

Starting Location: Olympia Park, 1031-967 Virginia Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15211
